First off, I want to congratulate a fellow blogger who followed his dreams and published a novel. He didn’t choose the path I have, but went the e-publishing route. But that does not make him any less published, it does not make him any less note worthy. So without any farther rambling, A huge Congratulations to Albert Berg! Please, go check out his blog and his book.
Some days it’s harder to get started than others. Today is one of those days, in a big way. I had a crappy night last night and this morning, I’m feeling it big time. Three cups of coffee in and I still can’t get the sleep fog from my mind, and this is as far as I’ve gotten on this today. This is one of those times where I just want to curl up with a good book and veg out for the day. Today I need to push myself harder than normal to get the work done. Each word will be a fight, but I can’t let a bad night keep me from working. If I worked a “real” job I would still have to get ready and go to work, despite how I felt. This is no different.
I may not be up to constructing a new story or character, but my lack of zeal won’t interfere with line edits, research or networking. There is a lot of work to be done that doesn’t require me writing a single word. So four cups in, still foggy and a screaming baby, looks like today is going to be one of those days.
